[ cheers and applause ] captions paid for by nbc-universal television -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you, guys. very nice. so excited. thank you. welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon," everybody. happy wednesday. [ cheers ] happy wednesday. it's been raining all day here in new york city, huh? it's awful. the visibility is so bad at laguardia, northwest pilots can't even see their laptops. it's rough. [ light laughter ] first lady michelle obama and second lady jill biden were at game one of the world series tonight in new york.
yeah, they went because michelle loves baseball, and mrs. biden loves getting out of the house. did you hear about this? this is insane. a woman in philadelphia was arrested after she offered sex in exchange for tickets to a world series game. when we heard about that steve phillpis from espn is like, "what kind of seats you looking for? [ laughter ] i got two. throw in a free hot dog." [ laughter and ohs ] that was you who made that joke. i mean i didn't even -- [ laughter ] can you believe that? the woman offered sex for tickets. in her defense, though, she loves baseball, the eras, the rbis, the stds. [ laughter ] she just loves it. you guys excited for halloween? [ cheers and applause ] only three days away. only three days away, this year, the most popular costumes are bernie madoff, kate gosselin and lady gaga. the lady gaga one is my favorite, except for the fact
that you have to change it every ten minutes. that's the only problem with that one. [ light laughter ] you know what least popular costume is? bloody joe biden. [ light laughter ] that's what i'm going as. the u.n. announced that it will start text messaging food vouchers to iraqi refugees on their cell phones. you know, for all those people who can't afford food but can afford cell phones. [ light laughter ] what's going on? [ in middle eastern accent ] "did you get the voucher -- free sandwiches. this is great." "no, i haven't gotten it, but have you gotten shazam? you got to download this, i don't know how they do it. they find out the music, you just hold it up to the --" [ laughter ] "maybe it's me -- maybe it's just because i haven't eaten in in six weeks. that's all." [ light laughter ] a new study discovered that children who take psychiatric drugs are likely to gain anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds. that's good. if there is one thing that helps childhood depression it's childhood obesity. that's great. [ laughter ] here's some big sports news, you guys. tennis legend, andre agassi, revealed in his new autobiography that he used crystal meth on a regular basis
in the late '90s. though, he admits he plays better on grass. [ laughter ] that was your wednesday night tennis joke, you guys. you anted it, you guys got it. your wednesday night -- [ applause ] [ cymbal crash ] [ laughter ] in other news, the -- [ light laughter ] no, agassi actually said that the crystal meth sent him on a manic apartment cleaning binge. so, did you hear that kids, don't do meth unless you want to win the u.s. open and have a really clean apartment, okay? [ light laughter ] you guys, levi johnston, you know, the father of sarah palin's grandson? levi johnston, you guys heard of him? you just didn't answer, you just -- show of hands? is that what you're doing? [ laughter ] well, his manager says he's 90% sure that levi will show full frontal nudity in his "playgirl" photo spread next month. i know, i'm just as shocked as
you are to hear that levi johnston has a manager. [ laughter ] this is interesting here, women in chicago are buying guns now more than ever. in fact, today on her show, oprah told everyone to look under their seats. "everyone is getting a handgun!" [ cheers and applause ] "it's a glock!" [ laughter ] you guys, lilith fair, the all female music festival, will return next year for an 18 city tour throughout north america and london. so, ladies, get your tickets now and guys, get your other plans ready. [ light laughter ] and finally, a new study found that women's faces actually age and wrinkle just like their mothers. the study was conducted by the american society of wrong things to say to your wife. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots! ♪ [ cheers and applause ]

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: so, like, what are you >> jimmy: do they know much about like television or anything? >> yeah. these guys are very -- they're very traditional maasais. very proud of their culture, but very modern guys, you know. they're really committed to this work, and they're -- they're really interested in new york, but some of it just -- some of it doesn't square -- like people picking up after dogs is been a constant source of amusement to them.

planetarium >> jimmy: that's great. >> and whoopi goldberg narrates -- >> jimmy: yeah, the -- >> -- the space show. and you go off to space and there's on of those like bass rumbles in the -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> -- the seats all shake. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and one of these guys went for the aisle. he thought the building was coming down. >> jimmy: he just took off? >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah, that's what i would have done, too. >> yes. >> jimmy: like, "wait, what's going on?" the other thing you did, which, i mean, this freaked me because you could do anything in new york city. you took them to the planetarium and that's a cool thing to do. you also took them to meet david blaine and have him do a trick for them. i mean, wait, that must have freaked his mind out. i mean -- [ light laughter ] >> i don't know what -- i don't know what the maasai word is for witch doctor. [ laughter ] but that's what -- >> jimmy: it must have -- i mean, honestly, it's a cool thing that you're doing. >> yeah. yes. >> jimmy: i met some maasai. i went to africa once. and i had a digital camera, and i was just taking pictures and i showed them the picture, and
they were just freaking out, like "what is that?" like, "that is insane." imagine what they were doing to the heads of david blaine in the room. what is going on? >> he actually -- the guy in the picture there while doing that trick, he did the thing of taking a watch, you know. he took his watch, he stole his watch while doing the trick for him. and that was -- he was talking about that for days. >> jimmy: oh really? i love that. i also lost my watch. great hanging out with you. >> i think, if we could take blaine back to kenya. >> jimmy: yeah. >> we could, like, control the whole southern half of the country. >> jimmy: you probably could. [ laughter ] that's a good idea, actually. >> yeah and like have -- >> jimmy: let's tell about this documentary you're doing on hbo, "by the people." >> yeah. >> jimmy: this is so cool. you got involved with obama when he was senator obama. before -- >> we did, yeah. we had this idea to -- to track his experiences in the senate. you know, we were all struck by him as many people were after that convention speech. and we kind of thought, here's a guy who is more our age than parents' age, who, young people are really responding to. maybe it would be an interesting way to engage people in politics by just following what he encounters in the senate.
so that's what we started off doing. we filmed for almost a year before he even declared his candidacy. and then -- and then, amazingly, we persuaded them to let us keep going. and so we got this incredible opportunity to be the only crew that was given inside access to the campaign while it was happening. and we made this film that ultimately became a film about his campaign scene from the inside. >> jimmy: it's all behind the scenes stuff from -- when, when, you know, all the issues were coming up, people debating them and this is all what's happening -- >> yeah, we filmed debate prep. we filmed him and michelle at home with the family. and really -- really actually a historic amount of access to a presidential candidate. >> jimmy: so cool, and you had had everybody working on the campaign, which we have footage of. >> we did. one of the --i have to say, i think the film, as much as anything, is really a portrait of the young people who made up his movement, and of the democratic process in a lot of ways. i think it's the not just for obama supporters, it really will
be of interest to everybody. and i think one of the things that's most cool about it is seeing the young people at work. and some of them are really young. like we have some -- what is it, this one 9-year-old kid who worked the phone banks. >> jimmy: 9 years old. >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah. he must have been fun to hang out with. >> yeah, he's actually governor of illinois now. >> jimmy: is he governor? [ laughter ] okay, it's nap time now. yeah. we have a clip. let's take a look. >> yeah. take a look at this. >> i'm 9 years old. i'm a volunteer with the obama campaign. how are you? yes, i am. obama is a candidate running for president. he is a candidate running for president. he is a candidate running for president of the united states of america. no, hillary is running for president.
obama -- okay, have a wonderful day. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, have a wonderful day. i tell you. >> governor of illinois. >> jimmy: working -- >> governor of illinois. >> jimmy: "by the people: the election of barack obama" airs tuesday november 3rd at 9:00 p.m. on hbo. good luck with the marathon. >> thank you. thank you. >> jimmy: edward norton, everybody! hulk hogan is up next! come on back.

[ laughter ] this is exciting. >> i've got a bad neck, why do i have to look back? >> jimmy: no, it's all right. i can move up here. i can move the desk. >> oh, cool. i'm just kidding. >> jimmy: i mean, you're strong enough. >> man, this is awesome. >> jimmy: you do whatever you want on our show. you can host if you want. i don't care. i mean, really. i had every single hulk hogan thing when i was growing up. i had bandanas. i had dolls of yours. i remember -- you remember thinking -- thumb wrestling. >> yeah, brother. yeah. >> jimmy: i would put it on your thumb and i would wrestle you and andre the giant. they're really -- i'm just basically wrestling -- i'm wrestling myself, basically. [ light laughter ] and that would just give me hours of entertainment. >> yeah, i've got all that junk back at the house. i've got like a memorabilia room. and downstairs, there's so much stuff and i recently got the house back, because i went through this divorce. >> yeah! >> so, i got to go downstairs -- [ cheers ] i got to go downstairs and look around, you know, and i'm not trying to be a perv or anything, but i found these hulk hogan
boxer shorts with you know a picture of me on the side of the shorts. so i gave them to my girlfriend. and i said, "hey, jennifer wear these things, man. it looks awesome to see myself walking around the house." i'm going, "there i go." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, that's pretty sick. yeah. >> she puts them on to clean. yeah, it's pretty cool you know. >> jimmy: dude, we've got to talk about this. >> sure, brother. >> jimmy: "my life outside the ring." this is a pretty intense book. >> yeah, it got pretty heavy there for a while. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i kind of like bottomed out, you know and i had everything just turn upside down. you know, my 23-year marriage ended and my son had an accident in a car, and one of the young men that was living with us, he ended up in the hospital. and just everything disappeared at once. and i had had a couple real, real bad days. you know so -- >> jimmy: is this after "hogan knows best?" i mean, is this -- >> yeah. yeah, everything was over. i was actually shooting a show with nbc called "american gladiators," a prime time show. and i was actually on the set with laila ali, and i was getting ready to open this thing up and "welcome to american gladiators."
and the sony sound stage was full and my phone rang and i had to answer it because, you know of all the legal stuff going on, and it's my lawyer, and he goes, you know, "your wife just filed for divorce." so it was a major drop-kick of all time so i had to regroup and get through it, and it kind of went downhill from there, you know. >> jimmy: i think the book opens up with you having a gun, a loaded gun. >> yeah. yeah, it got crazy. because it was to the point where i had this gun and i bought it for target practice and stuff like that. and i kind of put it in a safe and left it there. and when i got home and all of the rooms were empty and all of my animals were gone and there were pictures of the family everywhere. i kind of, like, sat in this chair that i had because of my back and knees were so bad, i couldn't brush my teeth without sitting down. so, i sat in this chair, and i kind of just snapped into that old wrestling mentality and said, "where's that bottle?" i grabbed the bottle of rum and started drinking it, and i found this bottle of pills in the drawer and started eating them. and i had two of the worst days in my life. and laila ali called me and snapped me right out of it.
but -- >> jimmy: on behalf of fans everywhere, i mean, we're so happy you didn't do that. >> oh, cool, man. >> jimmy: we love you so much. >> no. no, thank you, brother. [ cheers and applause ] no, but you know, from that point on it changed my life, because i got sick and tired of being sick and tired. and i snapped out of it. and i realized life was beautiful and people are honest, and people were cool. and it was a situation where from that point on, nothing but great things have been happening to me. so, that's why i just wanted to write this book, because so many people are losing homes and having tough times with jobs, like in the neighborhood i live in, there was never a house for sale. now there's 50 or 60 homes for sale. so, i said if i can pull the nose up on my deal, you know and there's so many people that know me and watch me. i just wanted everybody to know that things are cool, you know. and it gets better. >> jimmy: yeah. you set the record straight, too, about what you went through. and sometimes i think being a celebrity, like tabloids can go one side and all you hear is from one side and then you go, "well, i've got to tell my side." >> well, you know it got crazy, because when this whole thing
went down you know, i said, "you know, i'm not going to say a word. i'm going to let this thing roll out." so, after four or five months of getting killed in the tabloids, you know, "the guy is a nut case." "he's done all this stuff." all of my friends and especially my close friends, eric bischoff, and my manager, jimmy hart said, "if you don't say something, you're not even going to have a career left." so, i went ahead and you know, i spoke up and i said, "you know i just don't want to be calling a reporter every week and doing this back and forth. we'll just write the book, set he record straight and move on with my life." and things are going great, you know? >> jimmy: good man. and speaking of jimmy hart, by the way, i saw him back stage. >> yeah. >> jimmy: he threw dust in my eyes. >> brother, i tell you -- [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: and took my legs out. exactly. >> looking for a leg lock. we're a tag team. >> well, lou albano was a really great friend of mine, you know and he just passed away, so i said, "jimmy man, come on up here." so, jimmy hart is one of the greatest wrestling managers of all time. and he's going around shaking everybody's hands and i was telling, "get everybody's wallet while you're doing it." [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: the old thing. well, you just announced, i mean, this is a big announcement. i don't know if you guys knew this. hulkster is back wrestling.
>> yup. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: are you in wrestling? >> no, i'm kind of like going to australia for a couple days to get the old sea legs back in the old yellow boots. but when i come back, i've been watching what's going on, and there's only one company and there's no choices for the fans or the talent. and i said, "you know what, i've known a lot about this business and i want to give everybody a choice again." so, i've hooked up with tna. and i don't know what's going to happen, but i know just a little bit about this business. so, it's going to be kind of cool to get back in there and talk to this young guys about theory and the art form and get them back on track with this thing. >> jimmy: kind of cool, now that you have all this experience, you can actually go back and say, "do it again." >> well, i do know a little bit about that. the wrestling business, yes. >> jimmy: i think you do. absolutely. you're the greatest. ladies and gentlemen, hulk hogan! >> thank you guys! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thanks so much. "my life outside of the ring," is in stores now. we'll be right back with weird al yankovic, everybody!

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: and you sent him -- you just sent in a tape which at then was probably reel to reel, right? or was it a cassette. >> it was a cassette tape. you know, you'd get 3 for a buck. in a little pack, in a little compact cassette. >> jimmy: yeah. >> my recording budget is much more these days. but back then i was going for value. >> jimmy: you recorded in the bathroom, right? am i -- >> this was before the bathroom. this was the bedroom days. j>> oh, really? >> i moved on to the bathroom later when i wanted the "bathroom wall of sound" effect.
